The Area –  Jerez de la Frontera

 

Jerez, is without doubt one of the most wonderful towns in Spain, enjoy your stay, you’ll find the Spain you didn’t know you were looking for.

Even at the end of October it is hot, 29c during the days. This is a wonderful dry heat, one is quite comfortable strolling and exploring. This is a town that is proud of itself.
Jerez de la Frontera is built around plaza after plaza, each street lined with heavily laden orange trees and Jacarandas. The dimensions and scale of the town are perfectly proportioned and serve as a great contrast the the medieval tone of Cadiz.. Jerez is in part a planned city with haphazard side-streets but one can see that some of the civic planning of the Romans, and after them the Moors, has survived. The town is old, we are looking at much that survived more than 1000 years. The eleventh century Alcazar is worth a visit and so is the small but useful Archeological Museum in the Plaza Mercado. Even if you aren’t interested in pre-history or the Roman and Moorish remains, or even the 7th Century Persian helmet, just savour a perfect building that completely recaptures the spirit of a Roman villa with its internal courtyards and cool marble floors. Jerez Cathedral

Opposite the Alcazar they are refurbishing an old warehouse as apartments and as you wander the barrios of Jerez one becomes aware of how important history is to the town and how sympathetic the architects are to the past when they design even new buildings within the old walls.
Jerez is full of pavement cafes, the waiters and waitresses are friendly and helpful, the town is welcoming everywhere you go. If it is too hot for you, find a shady open spot outside a cafe and try some of the wonderful tapas and sherry.

Everywhere you turn in Jerez you will find something elegant, another little plaza you missed, always a bank. I have never seen so many banks in one town. For shopping the Calle Larga is the avenue for you, cutting through the centre of town, and paved but more recently, American style commercial centres have been built on the outskirts near the hospital and are amongst the biggest in Spain. This is one town that has at least realised that cars can be kept out of the centre.

Of course Jerez means sherry and you can’t avoid the bodegas or the sherry producers. Harveys is right by the station, but the prettiest and most central is Gonzalez Byass. Even if you don’t like sherry, it’s worth looking around or taking at least one tour and don’t forget to sample the Jerez brandy which is surprisingly smooth and easy to swallow. Wine towns are always civilised and Jerez is no exception. The commercial streets are wide and tree lined, the barrios are low scale, filled with houses that hide the courtyards within.

Jerez is very much a town in transition. There are simple delights, discovering at the intersection beside St Domingo’s Church (1264) the delightful arbour covered street of Porvera. 1264 is a key date as this is when the town was taken back from the Moors.

Spain,Bull Fight-2- with Mila,2012

The Moors left Jerez a long time ago. Alfonso X the Wise still has a monument to his victory over it. Like Sevilla, Jerez was a town ruled by the Moors, who showed remarkable tolerance for others, letting Christians and Jews alone for the most part. From the quantity of evidence of archeological remains, Jerez went through a building boom in the eleventh century and again, the sixteenth where many churches have been built on the site of old mosques. It pretty much froze at that level and size for the next four hundred years and thus was saved the ravages of ‘progress’. The town feels relaxed and in summer the siesta is taken seriously, as it gets to be pretty hot here.

There are two other reasons to come to Jerez, Flamenco and dancing horses. Flamenco began its revival here and now people come from all over the world to study in the old traditions here. You can find out more in the Centro Andaluz de Flamenco in the hard to find Plaza de San Juan. The best Flamenco flares up in different places around the town and and on weekends performers often go to Sevilla to entertain there. After the attraction of Flamenco, the horse has place of honour here and on Thursdays at noon you can see the best equestrian skills on show at the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art Avda, Duque de Abrantes.

 

 

The Region – Cadiz Province / Costa de la Luz

 

Situated in the South-Western province of Cadiz—the heart of Spain’s sherry region—Arcos was declared a national historic-artistic monument in 1962 in recognition of its exceptional architecture and impressive location. The old town is a tangled labyrinth of cobbled streets and alleys that lead up to the churches of Santa Maria de la Asuncion and San Pedro. From the square at the top, there are spectacular views of the Andalusian countryside.A 20 minute drive from Arcos, you will find Jerez de la Frontera—renowned for its sherry and brandy production, as well as its fine horses and Flamenco. The town also dates back to Moorish times and has a charming old town and palm lined squares. Jerez is also famous for Flamenco, and the flamenco festival of Jerez at the end of February is one of the most important in the world.

November 2009 - Zahara de la Sierra 044 Another 20 minutes to the West, and you reach Costa de la Luz—200 miles of unspoilt coast line and shimmering white beaches. There are plenty of spots along the coast between Puerto de Santa Maria and Tarifa. You can always find good seafood and tapas restaurants too up and down the coast. Like Arcos, there are many other Pueblos Blancos throughout the province, which share a history involving the centuries-long fight of the Spaniards to reconquer Spain. Medina Sidonia, Vejer de la Frontera, Olvera and Grazalema are but a few worth visiting. Or travel further East to the town of Ronda, the birthplace of modern bull fighting. Along the way, you will pass through the beautiful countryside of Grazalema – a 50,000 hectare protected natural park. There is lots to do if you are looking for an active holiday: from walking to horse riding, to learning to paraglide, wind or kite surf. The main cities in the area are Seville – an easy 60 minute drive away, and Cadiz on the coast.
